The Yale-Ukraine Initiative and the Yale
Center for International and Area Studies will host a two-day conference
which will examine Ukrainian politics in the past century.
The recent presidential elections in Ukraine have
once again made evident the challenges that confront Ukrainian society:
nation-building and creation of stable democratic institutions, economic
reform, integration of regional and national interests, and relations with
the ex-Soviet world and beyond. These complex issues will form the
basis for discussion at this year's conference as its contributors explore
the nature and distinctiveness of Ukrainian politics today; the role of
language and conflicting identities in the political process; and the enduring
legacy of earlier historical and cultural developments.
The conference, Saturday April 8, and Sunday April
9, will be held from 9:00 am -- 6:00 pm in the Auditorium of Henry R. Luce
Hall, 34 Hillhouse Avenue, New Haven, Connecticut.
Conference papers will be made available to all
participants during the conference and will be published afterward in the
Working Papers Series of the Yale Center for International and Area Studies.
Support for the conference is provided by Yale's
Edward J. and Dorothy Clarke Kempf Fund, with special assistance from the
Yale Center for International and Area Studies, Pierson College, and European
The Yale-Ukraine Initiative, established in 1994
by a grant from the Chopivsky Family Foundation, seeks to enhance the study
